Adults who are already working in health care or who would like to do so in the future can demonstrate their specialist language skills at an advanced language level with the Goethe-Test PRO Pflege certification. The examination corresponds to the fourth level (B2) of the six-level scale of competence laid down in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
The Goethe-Test PRO Pflege exam comprises reading, listening, writing and speaking components. The exam is offered at selected centres. Consistent standards are used worldwide for administration and evaluation.
In the digital part of the exam, the Goethe-Test PRO Pflege determines the candidate’s reading and listening skill levels in 60 to 90 minutes. All participants begin the exam at the same level. As the exam progresses, the program chooses the next question based on your previous answer, allowing the level of difficulty to be adjusted to your language skills.The productive parts assess writing and speaking at level B2. The speaking part of the exam deals with typical occupational situations in nursing care for the sick and elderly, and the tasks in the writing part of the exam are also based on everyday nursing practice. The speaking exam is carried out in pairs with two examiners present.
